I PLEDGE&8230; - thebeautydepartment.com photo: lilylock.tumblr.com/post design: eunice chun Every single Winter I swear that I’m not going to let my face get dry, irritated and chapped. But life gets in the way, I forget to stay on top of it and before I know it, the corners of my lips are cracked and my chin is so dry and irritated that it even has little rash-like bumps on it! Then I spend the next month trying to turn it around, but the heavy emollient creams strong enough to tackle the chapped skin only inflame and irritate the rash, causing dermatitis and break outs, landing me in my dermatologist’s office, hoping my insurance will cover it!! It’s enough to drive a woman nuts. I will try not to let my scarf or the collar of my coat rub against my chin and cause chaffing.I will try not to take scolding hot showers but warm ones instead. Yes that’s ten promises and seems daunting, but it’ll be so worth it if I can make it through until March without succumbing to the vicious cycle of dry, chapped and rash-covered skin!
